A while ago I heard about encrypting folders with your “secret” files or important files in a simple JPG picture, but I wasn’t curious enough about it . Well! until today, when I was thinking about my next tutorial or post and this subject on “How To Encrypt Your important Files in a JPG Picture ” came in my head .Ok now you know why I am writing this article, but how could we do it? .
it’s actually very simple so lets start .
- Requirement :
- Pictures Editor : “Paint” for example.
- Winrar : DOWNLOAD.
- A simple line which you will type in CMD.
- Steps :
1- Open Paint or photoshop and create a picture then save it as jpg file with the name lokendra (so your final product will be lokendra.jpg) in your desktop.
2- Create a new folder in your desktop and rename it “me”.
3- Place all your secret or important file in “me” folder.
4-Compress “me” folder with winrar (final result will be me.rar)
6-Type cd desktop and press Enter button
7- Type copy /b lokendra.jpg+me.rar new.jpg and press enter
Now you have a new file in your desktop called “new.jpg” where all your important file are encrypted :).
